    Mandy at's Note:

    A super easy stand-in for traditional key lime pie. Slightly altered from the version posted on Serious Eats ( Squeezing the limes can be a chore, but you can always skip it by buying fresh lime juice.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 10



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine condensed milk and heavy cream in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Add lime juice and whisk until thickened, about 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Spread 1 cup filling on bottom of deep-dish pie plate.
    4. 4
      Top with single layer of Ritz crackers.
    5. 5
      Repeat, alternating layers of filling and crackers until pie plate is full. Finish with a layer of filling. For that layer, mix half of the lime zest into the "batter".
    6. 6
      Sprinkle with the remaining grated lime zest.
    7. 7
      Refrigerate overnight. Keep refrigerated until serving.
    8. 8
      Note: Original recipe called for 1/2 cup juice but I found it better with more. I also only needed 6 limes to provide the juice I needed. Club crackers can stand-in for Ritz.

      Mandy! You genius. I get all the flavors and satisfaction of a key lime pie, but with only a quarter of the work and time spent. I actually like this version better - the salty hit you get from the crackers is right up my alley. Thanks so much for posting!

      Thank you, Mandy! In the past I designated Key Lime Pie as a "weekend only" dessert due to time limitations. I love that I can have the flavor of one of my favorite pies in just 10 minutes. Great idea!

      Wow! My dad is a huge key lime pie guy and makes them often. But who has all that time? This is my go-to when I'm craving that refreshingly sweet bite but don't want to put in all the effort. Well done, Mandy!
